It was a beautiful day in Chicago and I did not want to deal with traffic or parking, so I took the train to the city to attend NeoCon, a huge furniture trade show.

I wanted to be sure to cover it for you, our Gringo customers. Always searching for inspiration and new design ideas to incorporate into our Mexican furniture designs or in our work with you in helping you ...

We're just back from the Caribbean where we attended a family wedding.

First off, a comment about the use of color in Caribbean furniture and architecture. Just as in many places in Mexico, in St. Lucia we found bright colors… refreshing, vibrant, spectacular! At nearly every bend in the road we were met with sweet surprises … houses and furnishings painted in Beach Cottage style – white, turquoise, lime green...

A few days back we were very happy to hear that Mexican colonial homes in Merida are selling quite actively again. This is wonderful news because it means people are taking advantage of the great opportunity and prices available right now. It is also wonderful because it means people are not succumbing to the fear and the media hype and instead they are following their own instincts about Mexico. This is a great time to buy in Mexico. The tide is already turning again on the Mexican real estate market and there are amazing deals to be had. We w...
